Bayer in the running for German sustainability award
A novel process for the production of plastics using carbon dioxide has made Bayer a favourite for this year’s German Sustainability Award. The company is among the top three candidates in the category 'Germany’s Most Sustainable Initiatives'. Bayer was nominated for the Dream Production research project, which aims to turn the greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful raw material. This could ultimately provide the chemical industry with an alternative to increasingly scarce resources such as petroleum, claimed the company. The winner will be announced in Dusseldorf on 4 November as part of the celebration of German Sustainability Day.
